Faculty and Staff
To teach or not to teach? For me, that has never been the question! As a kid, I daydreamed about being a teacher and have always loved books. What could be better than putting those two passions together for a career?
I have been an English teacher for over 15 years with all but two of those spent at Tampa Prep. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English (with an emphasis on Writing) and a Master of Science degree in English Education at the secondary level from Florida State University. I completed an internship in Tallahassee and have taught all grade levels and abilities from 6th grade through 12th grade in both public and private schools. I discovered along the way that I love teaching English to middle schoolers! We get to study new vocabulary, refine grammar skills, improve on the mechanics and styles of writing and discover good literature all while still having lots of fun in the classroom.
I am a member of the National Council of Teachers of English and was a former Tampa Prep Sigety Chair holder. I am the faculty advisor to Prep’s Student Leaders’ Club in the Middle School. I have coached various sports throughout the years and try to stay involved in student activities. The rapport amongst the teachers and between the teachers and students is invaluable, and I found the perfect place for me in Tampa Prep’s Middle School!
